Moray’s Last Sunday - February 11th

The clergy, church wardens, choir and PCC have agreed that on Sunday February 11th we should have just one service to say goodbye to him and to Annie.

However (of course!) what is given this year does not wipe out the forecast deficit for next year. Please read the pew cards and respond in whatever way you can. Comments on the cards should be emailed to Moray. Read more
